The present volume of the Mathematical Reference Library is devoted to the so-called method of statistical trials (the Monte Carlo method). In contrast with the earlier volumes, which were devoted to the classical divisions of mathematics and a sharply delineated subject matter with well-established terminology and traditions of exposition, the mathematical methods examined in the present volume have been developed only in the last thirteen years.* These methods, which are applied in the most...

When solving a problem, first of all establish the physical laws which it is based on. Then use the formulas expressing these laws to solve the problem in symbols, and finally substitute the numerical data in one system of units. This collection of problems is based on the International System of Units preferred today in all the fields of' science, engineering and economy. Other units can be converted to 51 units with the aid of the relevant tables given in this book. Each section is preceded...

Fundamental Laws of Mechanics  was first published in English by Mir in 1980. Currently there is 2002 reprint still in stock from CBS Publishers. The objective of this book is to draw the readers’ attention to the  basic  laws of mechanics, that is, to the laws of motion and to laws of conservation of energy, momentum and angular momentum, as well as to show  how  these laws are to be applied in solving various scientific problems. At the same time author has excluded all things of minor...

This little book is devoted to three theorems in arithmetic, which, in spite of their apparent simplicity, have been the objects of the efforts of many important mathematical scholars. The proofs which are presented here make use of completely elementary means, (although they are not very simple). The book can be understood by beginning college students, and is intended for wide circles of lovers of mathematics.

This is a collection of science fiction works and a number of propositions by the Russian author, K. E. Tsiolkovsky. Many of his ideas and propositions have proven to be inaccurate, but nevertheless he did accurately describe some possibilities of the space environment as we know it today. He proposed that the absence of gravity facilitates work, and this relieves the pain of the aged and the ill. He proposed the use of a special green house for supplying food and the restoration of wastes into...

The main idea The main idea behind this book is to amalgamate the description of the basic concepts of the theory and the practical methods of solving problems in one book. Therefore, each chapter contains first a description of the theory of the subject being considered (illustrated by concrete examples) and then a set of selected problems with solutions. The problems are closely related to the text and often complement it. Hence they should be analYfed together with the text. In author’s...

The whole book is presented as a relatively free-flowing dialogue between the AUTHOR and the READER. From one discussion to another the AUTHOR will lead the inquisitive and receptive READER to different notions, ideas, and theorems of calculus, emphasizing especially complicated or delicate aspects, stressing the inner logic of proofs, and attracting the reader's attention to special points. I hope that this form of presentation will help a reader of the book in learning new definitions such as...

Apart from its purely scientific value, which is evident and requires no comment, the possibility of such an appli­ cation is particularly...

The most common language of numbers, the decimal system, has not always been used universally. From a purely mathematical point of view, the decimal system has no inherent advantages over other possible systems; its popularity is due to historical and biological, not mathematical factors. In this book, S. V. Fomin discusses the origin, properties, and applications of various number systems, including the decimal, the binary, and the ternary. His presentation offers the student an introduction...

The whole book is presented as a relatively free-flowing dialogue between the AUTHOR and the READER. From one discussion to another the AUTHOR will lead the inquisitive and receptive READER to different notions, ideas, and theorems of calculus, emphasizing especially complicated or delicate aspects, stressing the inner logic of proofs, and attracting the reader's attention to special points. I hope that this form of presentation will help a reader of the book in learning new definitions such as...

About the book: This book will tell you about the origin and development of quantum mechanics, about its new concepts. It will describe how the new theory deciphered the secrets of the structure of atoms, molecules, crystals, atomic nuclei, and how quantum mechanics is dealing with the problem of the most fundamental of all properties of matter - the interaction of particles and the relationships between fields and matter. The book was translated from the Russian by and was first published by...

This book is intended for pupils in the top classes in high schools and for students in mathematics departments of universi- ties and teachers' colleges. It may also be useful in the work of mathematical societies and may be of interest to teachers of mathematics in junior high and high schools. The subject matter is concerned with both algebra and geom- etry. There are many useful connections between these two disciplines. Many applications of algebra to geometry and of geometry to algebra...

This book has developed from courses of lectures given by the author over a period of years to the students of the Moscow PhysicoTechnical Institute. It is intended for the students having basic knowledge of mathematical analysis, algebra and the theory of ordinary differential equations to the extent of a university course. Except Chapter I, where some general questions regarding partial differential equations have been examined, the material has been arranged so as to correspond to the basic...

Higher algebra—the subject of this text—is a far-reaching and natural generalization of the basic school course of elementary algebra. Central to elementary algebra is without doubt the problem of solving equations. The study of equations begins with the very simple case of one equation of the first degree in one unknown. From there on, the development proceeds in two directions: to systems of two and three equations of the first degree in two and, respectively, three unknowns, and to a...

The present book is intended for persons acquainted with differential and integral calculus and with vector algebra. The fundamentals of vector analysis are set out in the text as needed. The main object of this book is to find out the physical meaning and content of the fundamental laws and postulates of the theory of electricity. In comparison with this object, only a subordinate part is relegated to formal and logical harmony, and to a strict and ordered treatment. Not trying to achieve...

N. N. Vorob'ev’s Criteria for Divisibility introduces the high school or early college student to a specific number-theoretic topic and explains the general mathematical structures which underlie the particular concepts discussed. Vorob’ev discusses the ideas of well-ordered sets, partial and linear orderings, equivalence relations, equiva­ lence classes, algorithms, and the relationship between the determinability of algorithms defined on the integers and the well-ordering principle.

The book contains a complete exposition of the theory of systems of linear equations employing only elementary operations on matrices. The method of complete mathematical induction is, formally, not used here. However, in some cases it is hidden behind the words "etc.". Each section is followed by exercises. The main purpose of the exercises is to give the reader an opportunity to test his mastery of the material. The book is intended for a wide circle of readers, including pupils of...

This book offers a geometric theory of logarithms, in which (natural) logarithms are represented as areas of various geometrical shapes. All the properties of logarithms, as well as their methods of calculation, are then determined from the properties of the areas. The book introduces most simple concepts and properties of integral calculus, without resort to concept of derivative. The book is intended for all lovers of mathematics, particularly school children.
